New trustee chosen: Whitt


     A reliable source just phoned and informed me that Terri Whitt (a professor of nursing) has been chosen to replace Nancy Padberg on the South Orange County Community College District Board of Trustees. Padberg recently retired from the board.

Hi, I'm writing to tell you what workers in the F&M department have share with me. There was a worker who was let go because he was Gay.

The custodians were told not to say anything, maybe you can investigate it....
